OLYMPIA - If you plan to take down that big buck or prized elk bull this hunting season you’re in luck.

Just over unsold 2,600 deer and 116 elk multi-season tags will be available for purchase on August 22. The tags are what’s left over from the drawing in April. Elk multi-season tags will go on sale at 10a.m. on August 22 and deer tags will go on sale 10 minutes later at 10:10 a.m.

Hunters who plan to purchase both tags must do so in two separate transactions. Hunters who want to purchase a deer or elk multi-season tag must have purchased a 2019 deer or elk multi-season special hunt application, and also have a general season elk or deer license before buying a multi-season tag. General season elk or deer tags must be surrendered to an authorized WDFW license dealer at the time of the multi-season purchase, no exceptions.

Multi-season deer tags are $139.10 and mutli-multi-season elk tags are $182.
